hologram definition

  • noun:
    • The design created on a photosensitive method that is exposed by holography and photographically developed.
    • The photosensitive medium therefore subjected and thus developed. Also called holograph.
    • A three-dimensional image of an object developed by holography.
    • A photographic image giving the observer a seemingly three-dimensional view regarding the represented item. The three-dimensional result is generated by revealing a photographic recording method to an interference pattern generated by a coherent beam of light (as from a laser) shown from the subject, getting together with a beam right from the resource. The total three-dimensional impact needs illumination of the image with coherent light, but less perfect three-dimensional artistic results may also be seen once the hologram is illuminated with white light.
    • the advanced picture (or photographic record) that contains information for reproducing a three-dimensional image by holography
